The purpose of this blog is to help writers with their work, to be museful or perhaps instrumental in unclogging thoughts. To this end, I am providing a daily question, beginning sentence, beginning paragraph, prompt, and word-of-the-day to stimulate your “little gray cells.”
Question: With what dire or lame consequences did your parent(s) threaten to punish you?
Sentence: Mr. Sphinx, our history teacher, hated to repeat himself, so I raised my hand.
Paragraph: “Do you struggle to get through the day or are you so busy that the day is too soon over?” was one of the first stupid questions my prick therapist asked. What a moron! Which one of my screwed-up parents’ friends recommended Dr. Do-Wrong? Probably the addlebrained Adlers, always smiling. Gave me the creeps. Totally butting in, trying to do good. Buggers! I’d like to wipe those smiles off their friggin’ faces, maybe bash in their big, white teeth. Wouldn’t the doc like to know about that?
Prompt: Identify your first waterfall.
Word of the Day: habitude – n. 1. customary condition or character. 2. a habit or custom. 3. Obs. familiar relationship. (RANDOM HOUSE WEBSTER’S COLLEGE DICTIONARY, 1991)
If your work needs a title, tweaking, or critiquing, please do not hesitate to ask. Cyranette is here for you.
